    CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians added a walk-off win to a streak that has had everything. Jay Bruce hit an RBI double in the 10th inning as the Indians rallied for their 22nd straight win to extend their AL record, beating the Kansas City Royals 3-2 on Thursday night to move within four wins of matching the 1916 New York Giants for the longest streak in major league history. After blowouts, shutouts and oh-so-easy wins, the Indians went into extras for the first time to keep the longest streak in 101 years intact. Ramirez led off the 10th with...

    Cleveland police and emergency services unions have declined an invitation from the NFL's Cleveland Browns to hold an American flag for the team's season opener after some Browns players knelt for the national anthem during a preseason game. EMS union president Daniel Nemeth told Fox 8 Cleveland on Friday that the offer to participate in a pregame ceremony sounded great until a dozen Browns players refused to stand for the anthem, in support of free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

    Cleveland Whiskey in Ohio, founder and CEO Tom Lix is a firm believer that technology can accomplish in days what a barrel stashed underground would take a half-decade. Mr. Lix pours his mashes into a stainless steel vat along with chopped up pieces of barrel so that the wood can give the whiskey its traditional brown color. And in days, he emphasizes, many of Cleveland Whiskey’s products are ready for tasting and selling. Some, he says, even in 24 hours. Mr. Lix produced for me his Black Reserve, whose quality of taste is on par with Knob Creek. Its complexity...

    CLEVELAND -- Eleven Cleveland Browns players knelt in a circle during the national anthem prior to Monday's preseason game against the New York Giants. While the group knelt behind the Cleveland bench in front of the Gatorade buckets, several other players stood nearby and put their hands on a kneeling teammate's shoulder in support. Those who took a knee were tight end Seth DeValve, running backs Duke Johnson Jr. and Terrence Magee, safeties Jabrill Peppers and Calvin Pryor, cornerback Jamar Taylor, receivers Kenny Britt and Ricardo Louis, linebackers Chris Kirksey and Jamie Collins, and running back Isaiah Crowell (who was...
  • Baseball card company drops Chief Wahoo for ‘Block C’ logo

    Fox 8 News ^ | JULY 24, 2017 | DAVE NETHERS
    CLEVELAND- The Cleveland Indians' gradual evolution away from the familiar Chief Wahoo mascot appears to have made its way to the baseball card industry. Under pressure to separate itself from the age-old mascot by individuals who have made a public appeal claiming it to be offensive, the team now calls the 'Block C' its primary logo. But baseball card companies, including Topps, which is one of the largest, have included the logo along with players' images for years. This year, however, the card company appears not to be airbrushing the logo from the players photographs, but it seems to be...

    The deranged gunman who randomly executed an elderly Cleveland resident and posted footage of the killing on Facebook has possibly fled the city — and may be on the loose in another state, cops say. Police warned early Monday that residents in Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana and Michigan should be on the lookout for 37-year-old Steve Stephens, who is driving a white Ford Fusion and is believed to be armed and dangerous. “Suspect may be out of state at this time,” officials said in a statement. “Those outside of Northeast Ohio: Contact Local Authorities.”

He is still wanted and in public. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2017/04/man_accused_of_broadcasting_ea.html Very graphic video, I only post it to give you an idea of his MO. It involves death. https://twitter.com/NinoBrownskin_/status/853704554164219905 Edit: believe the video was removed. For your info, he stops his car in the middle of the street, walks up to the victim, pulls out his gun and murders him after making him say the name of his ex girlfriend. Mirrors of the video are available in the comments if you're interested, but I'd rather not include...

During the next eight weeks, engineers will expose the model to wind speeds ranging from Mach 0.3 to Mach 1.6 (approximately 150 to 950 mph) to understand the aerodynamics of the X-plane design as well as aspects of the propulsion system. NASA expects the QueSST X-plane to pave the way for supersonic flight over land in the not too distant future. "We'll be measuring the lift, drag and side forces on the model at different...

    An ongoing source of controversy in baseball is the Indians' ongoing use of the Chief Wahoo logo. For the uninitiated, here's the logo in question: The team has, without much acknowledgment, de-emphasized Wahoo in recent years, but it's still an occasional part of the team's uniform. As for the league, MLB addressed the issue in passing during last year's ALCS, but now it appears that commissioner Rob Manfred and the team are having more in-depth discussions about the use of Wahoo ... [Snip] The Indians were of course just awarded the 2019 All-Star Game ... If recent hints and cultural...

    Roth Steyr pistols are highly desired by collectors, with prices running up to $2,000. It is a curio/relic listed by the ATF, so it does not have to run through the normal FFL license.  It has many advanced features for 1907, reminiscent of the Glock pistol today. Both were designed in Austria. Both are striker fired, instead of using a hammer.  Both have no traditional safety, instead opting for a partial or half/cocked striker system.  Both the Glock and the Roth Steyr partially cock the striker, with the trigger then pulled to finish cocking and firing the pistol. The...
